Our commercial units

Our larger industrial units can range from 8kVA to 30kVA and above for small office systems, and up to 2MVA for large office complexes, data centres and manufacturing plants.

Where large battery banks supporting a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) need to be avoided because of space limitations, cost or weight, or where runtimes of more than half a day are required, a generator is usually the best solution for long-term standby power.

Selection of Generators

Many people miscalculate when trying to size the diesel generator power they require. This can be a daunting process and, without expert knowledge, can create an expensive problem. Factors such as surge current, synchronisation, harmonics, operating temperature and future capacity need to be considered.

UPS Systems plc’s experienced sales engineers can provide all the guidance required to match the right generator to your business needs. They will take into account current usage, any future expansion plans and can provide guidance and help on site location, planning applications and installation from the provision of a mounting plinth through to cabling, installation and commissioning.

Generator fuels - Diesel or natural gas

Diesel is the most common fuel used in generators due to its low flammability and stability over time. Natural gas generators are also commonly available and although the engine is slightly de-rated to accommodate the lower calorific value of gas vs. diesel these are as equally effective as standby power solutions where it is the right match for a particular installation.

In cases where it’s not possible to situate an oil tank nearby, nor use natural gas, then bottled gas is an alternative.

UPS Systems plc supply a range of different generator manufacturers including AKSA GeneratorsHyundai Generators and Pramac Generators.
